Runway over length

Post by Garysb »

I have just placed a runway between two pads at 366 feet
Shows correct on the afcad but extends past both pads in game
it seams to work ok and they do not use the extended bit
Any ideas?



Cheers

I am curious about this as well...almost sounds like a misconfigured blast extension or threshold setting.

When working on really short runways another thing that will throw you off is the width of the runway. The wider the runway, the more the runway is extended past the nodes at the end.

My guess is that you don't have a wide runway but it is something to take into consideration.

If it is 10' wide then that is not causing your issue. You could try reducing it a bit but my guess is that it won't make that much of a difference.

It's odd, I would say its something within FSX not ADE related. I loaded thermals into UK scenery once in FS9 and over certain airfields the mesh rose up above the scenery by several thousand feet ???? Got rid of the thermals bgl and problem gone.
